The brand name may not have the same elegant ring as Don Eduardo or Tesoro, but Voodoo Tiki Tequila is doing OK.
The company has just introduced the latest in a line of flavored tequilas made with 100% blue agave: Desert Rose Tequila, flavored with prickly pear.
The tequila already came in Mandarin lime infused (called Green Dragon) and a blue raspberry and kiwi infused (called Blue Dragon). The super premium tequilas are available in platinum, reposado and añejo. As many as 10 additional infusions are planned, but only as seasonal offerings.
The handmade glass bottles are etched and dipped in sealing wax and each features an actual glass “tiki” sculpture inside.
Voodoo Tiki Tequilas are made from blue agave plants aged anywhere from 8-12 years, and bottled in Mexico as set forth by law. The tequila factory is located in Arandas, in the state of Jalisco. The corporate headquarters are in Lighthouse Point, FL.
